Covering interface science from a novel surface science perspective, this eight-volume handbook offers a comprehensive overview of both these and numerous other topics. The initial chapters treat basic fundamentals on such topics as vacuum technology, while general chapters — where appropriate — describe theoretical methods and provide models to help explain the respective phenomena, such as band structure calculations, chemisorption and segregation. Additionally, short references to more specialized methodology accompany the descriptions of the most important techniques. Ideal as a reference for scientists in the field, as well as an introduction to current methods for newcomers.
